I missed the adjective "white" which indicates you are not looking
a deterministic Gaussian pulse but a noise signal with a flat
and a Gaussian probability distribution.


However, if there is no answer when I come back tonight, I will
try to help.


I have a sneaky feeling that you are not looking for a determin
